The National Parks: Our American Landscape - Ian Shive, Tom Kiernan LOVE THIS!!! A big, beautiful, amazing picture book with just a little bit of interesting text here and there about some of the photos. It's not just scenery. Ian Shive strives for great variety in subject matter within our national treasure lands. Great close-ups of animal and plant life and geologic features. Some really unique angles and perspectives make these photographs memorable, along with the more traditional views of our national parks, monuments, and recreation areas.
